Okay...I really don't want to share this information because I like it that Blue Springs doesn't have many tourists camping. The area of the upper Jack's Fork River is not for the tenderfoot tourists. You need to be rugged, adapt to bugs and don't need no stinking shower. However, a port-a-potie is nice. There is a picnic table at each campsite and outhouses around. One area downstream is the ultimate in riverside camping. It helped to have a van to retreat to because the bugs were bad. The silence was almost scarey. You can't even hear a highway, unless you get some loser next to you who love to drown out nature with Led Zepplin. I wish it was against the law to bring any form of music, except for bluegrass accoustic instruments which is only appropriate for the Ozark mountains. Come visit our beautiful heaven on earth, but leave it as beautiful as when you found it or we'll show you why we are called the "Show Me State". ;D
I agree! The upper portion of the Jacks Fork is Heavenly! Jam Up Cave was a spiritual experience! Don't worry...only die hards who respect nature will read this! ;D Most party people stay lower down stream and it looks like they are placing overdue alcohol restrictions! Yeah! Happy Paddling!
